about

I've been following director Edgar Wright since seminal sitcom Spaced and so I took Cinnamon to see 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' pretty much ignorant of the source material. I can't remember a better vibe in a movie theatre, it was incredible!

Cinnamon picked up the comics after and adored them. Even more so than in the film, Kim Pine gets a hard time being hated by her flatmates, not sure of what to do with her life and clearly not totally over being dumped by Scott.

Anywho, she kinda gets a happy ending but since she was my favourite character I felt she deserved a love song. We attempted to write in the vein of the Sex-Bomb-Omb music from the film, shouted random lyrics inclusive. While imitating other styles is not our strong point, I think we did okay.

lyrics

We are Emperor Gum and if you don't know about Scott Pilgrim this song won't make any sense!

Woo-hoo!
Here we go!

Saw you working at the video store
I'll be kind and rewind
You counter walk out the door

A redhead on fire, your expression like ice
Hang out with me and I'll treat you like a princess

Come on!

Kim Pine, this Valentines
Say you'll be mine
Let's burn some time

Watch out!
Yeah!
Pick it up!
2-3-4 go!

You're beating a pulse into my brain
Snaring my heart with your freckles and fame

Skip the wine
Maybe a coffee or two for a table
Take me in change

Kim Pine, be my Valentine
Leave bygones behind
Yeah, we'll be fine

Fin!
